Director of the Ministry of Tourism Phuket office, Santi Pawai told The Phuket News yesterday (Jan 7), “Her family received B1 million compensation from Phuket William Diving and an additional B1.6 million from her insurers in China.”

This article and almost seems to come across that this is a good thing. The negligence that led to the tragic and untimely death of this beautiful young lady was bought out for about $28,500 USD, just a fraction of what these jerks rake in over the year. Disgusting to the core.

Did anything William diving do, or not do, contribute to her death ? 
I wonder why they paid out one million ?  just good PR ?
